Due to the success of the recent demonstration in the Aldwych, the Administration team of the LTDF have decided to become totally independant of any trade organisation or association.
We believe the success of this demo was because it was supported by drivers from ALL trade organisations, and we would now like to build on this success.
In our view the way forward to ensure our trade survives is for all Taxi drivers, regardless of union or association, to unite.
We all share the same goals and objectives, and the only way we will achieve them is if we all stand together.
The LTDF will support anyone who we feel is moving in the right direction for the good of the Taxi trade.
The recent PCO Notice 15/10 issued just 2 days after our first demonstration in the Aldwych stated that all applications for new Satellite Offices will be suspended from 1st June until the consultation in August.
Although this is a positive move, we feel this falls way short of a solution to the trade’s problems, and we will continue to fight for the future of the Licensed London Taxi trade.
We hope to see you all in the Aldwych on Wednesday at 3pm.

Be lucky, Steve.
